Khloe Kardashian smooches Tristan Thompson during PDA-filled getaway
If Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's relationship is complicated, as Khloe indicated last week, both she and her NBA star beau seem OK with that. On Sunday, Aug. 12, the couple packed on the PDA while relaxing at a pool and tooling around on jet skis in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Khloe's sister, Kendall Jenner, as well as Kendall's rumored boyfriend, Ben Simmons, joined the pair for the sunny afternoon hang — although their daughter, True, seemed to have skipped the get-together. Between their snuggles, smooches and loved-up selfies, Khloe and Tristan looked endlessly content to focus their attention on one another. The trip to Mexico comes just days after Khloe was photographed holding a green Solo cup at her little sister, Kylie Jenner's 21st birthday party, where guests were asked to identify their relationship status via the color of their cup. Pink cups indicated the partygoer was "taken," yellow meant "single" and, according to the Daily Mail, green meant "it's complicated." Khloe — who's been cautiously speaking out about the work she and Tristan have done to repair their relationship since his cheating scandal — opted for green.

Are Angelina Jolie's new lawyers intent on attacking Brad Pitt?
Angelina Jolie appears to have added a few attack dogs to her legal team. Sources tell Page Six that while the actress has denied severing ties with divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, new lawyers could be the reason she's suddenly lashing out at Brad Pitt as they continue trying to reach a deal on custody and child support. In Angelina's latest filing, new attorney, Samantha Bley DeJean, claps back aggressively at Brad's claim that he has paid a "meaningful amount" of money to support the kids' needs and helped Angie out when she needed $8 million for a new house. "A loan is not … child support, and to represent it as such is misleading and inaccurate," the lawyer said in the filing. It turns out that filing shows Angie is also now working with Joseph Mannis, who is partners at the firm LA Hersh Mannis LLP alongside two of the lawyers behind Kim Basinger's nasty divorce from Alec Baldwin. It was while Alec and Kim were in the process of getting divorced that the voicemail recording of Alec calling his young daughter a "rude, thoughtless, little pig" surfaced. At the time, Alec accused Kim's lawyers of releasing the recording. They denied it, but if Alec was right, Brad may have more to worry about now. One legal expert source told Page Six it "didn't make sense" as a strategy for Angie to have intentionally hired lawyers who "would attack Brad." A source close Angie, meanwhile, says the new lawyers represent a "new phase" in the divorce proceedings. Angie's lawyers and Brad's reps declined to comment when contacted by Page Six.

Anna Kendrick trolls Ryan Reynolds with Teen Choice Awards wins
If there's an extra shine to Anna Kendrick's two new Teen Choice Awards trophies, it might be from the extra dose of snark that went into her acceptance speech on Sunday, Aug. 12. When a particularly gleeful and mischievous looking Anna took the stage to pick up her Choice Comedy Actress and Choice Twit honors, she zeroed in on one specific aspect of the wins: that she'd out acted and out tweeted her pal, Ryan Reynolds, who was up for (and lost out on) both Choice Twit and Choice Summer Movie Actor. "Did I just hear that I won Choice Twitter?" she began. "The Twitter thing — I have so much fun on Twitter and I know Mindy [Kaling] and Kumail [Nanjiani] and stuff were nominated and also, I know Ryan Reynolds was nominated, so … in your face, Ryan! Yeah, I beat you! Stay in your lane!" According to E! News, the teasing began when Anna started working with Ryan's wife, Blake Lively, on the upcoming film, "A Simple Favor." "@annakendrick47 is the hotter, female(r) version of my husband … so, would it really count as cheating??" Blake asked on Instagram earlier this year, indulging in her go-to online activity of trolling her man. (Ryan, by the way, is equally guilty of trolling Blake.) "So glad we're finally taking this public," Anna later wrote in the comments. "I let Ryan have 'Deadpool.' He can give me this."

Kristen Bell tears up at her daughter's graduation ceremony
Kristen Bell is feeling all the feels! Kristen and Dax Shepard's daughter, Lincoln, recently graduated from preschool — a milestone her mom seems to have celebrated with some serious waterworks. In a series of Instagram Story posts (via E! News), the "Frozen" star showed herself getting all weepy as Lincoln and her classmates performed "I've Got Peace Like a River." "Don't worry guys, I'm having a GREAT time at preschool graduation," she captioned one post. "I'm not a mess or anything." In another, she admitted, "Ok I was lying before. Please send help." Speaking to E! News this summer, Kristen opened up about what it was like to prepare her eldest child for kindergarten. "I feel great," she said at the time. "I mean, it has nothing to do with me, I'm just sort of here for her and I've shown her the school … they have like play dates during the summer where the kids can actually meet each other, so the environment is slightly more familiar and I have just told her, 'It's gonna be a new school and it's your school,' to give her a sense of ownership, and just be there for whatever she needs." Kristen and Dax also share a 3-year-old daughter named Delta.
Demi Moore helped deliver all of Soleil Moon Frye's kids
Demi Moore may have missed her calling in midwifery. According Soleil Moon Frye, Demi helped deliver all four of her children. "She's been in all my birth rooms," Soleil recently told UsWeekly. "She's like a doctor. She's like, 'Alright. I'm here. Step back everybody.'" Demi, who has three kids of her own, was extra helpful with the birth of Soleil's son, Story, who made it clear he was ready to arrive at a time when Soleil's obstetrician wasn't there. "Demi gets the phone with the doctor, she's like, 'If you're not gonna do it, I'm gonna do it,'" Soleil recalled. "She was ready. But then [the doctor] walked in and within five minutes, the baby popped out. He literally, like, shot out." The two are close pals outside of baby birthing, of course. "Demi is an incredible advocate and supporter of mine and really an incredible friend," Soleil said, adding that the "Ghost" star also has one more hidden talent: "I feel like she's a really good detector of bulls—!"
Idris Elba fuels James Bond speculation
"My name's Elba, Idris Elba." That's how a coy Idris Elba weighed in over the weekend on rumors he could be the next James Bond. He tweeted the Bond movie catchphrase along with selfie — and initially made no further comment as the post was retweeted and commented on repeatedly by eager fans. Later on Sunday, Aug. 12, though, Idris seemed to indicate he'd been joking. First, he shared an old-school photo of Public Enemy. In a second post, he wrote, "don't believe the HYPE…" The posts come on the heels of producer Antoine Fuqua's revelation that producer Barbara Broccoli, who helms the Bond movie franchise, believes "it is time" for 007 to be played by a non-white actor. Rumors Idris could take over for Daniel Craig had already been circulating prior to that.
Why Charlie Sheen pays Denise Richards less in child support than Brooke Mueller
Charlie Sheen is still hoping for a green light on his requests to reduce the amount of child support he pays his exes, Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller. But it turns out Denise has already reduced the payments at least once. The Blast reports that Charlie currently pays Brooke $55,000 a month towards the cost of caring for their two sons, while paying Denise just $20,000 for the two daughters they share. Insiders tell The Blast Charlie had been paying both exes the same amount until 2016 — when Denise agreed to scale back what she was asking. The two reportedly made the agreement out of court in an effort when Charlie's difficult financial situation became apparent to Denise. Charlie said in the latest child support filing that he has less than $10 million to his name and owes millions more to his lawyers, the IRS and his mortgage. Since Denise is getting ready to join the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast, she may soon be earning much more than Charlie.
